Thursday, April 15th finds the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns playing in their third and final meeting this season. Sacramento won the initial meeting on December 26th (106-103), while the Suns won (116-100) the second contest on the next day.
The Suns hold the all-time record between the clubs with 138 wins in 236 meetings. Last season, the clubs played four times with each squad winning two of the contests.
If there was an award for the team clearly without an identity it would have to be the Sacramento Kings. Their poor fan base got teased a few times this season with a couple of win streaks but nothing ever lasts in Sac Town.
Entering week 16 of play they were teasing again albeit on a three-game losing streak but their seven wins in eight games prior to that dip had them a game back of the final play-in spot. At the time the Warriors were residing in at the time.
Instead of capitalizing on a weaker schedule segment with three lottery teams in four games they lost them all to extend the losing streak to seven in a row.
Entering this match the bottom of the Western Conference board and play-in participants have shifted but Sacramento is nowhere in sight. Instead, it’s the Warriors who climbed to ninth, the Spurs are in 10th, the Pelicans surpassed the Kings who have fallen five games off the pace for the 10th seed.
The resulting effect is the Kings will make their 15th consecutive trip to the lottery.
The Suns continue to put pressure on the Jazz and enter this match 1.5 games back of the Western Conference leaders holding that margin over the Clippers and a 4.5 game edge over the Nuggets.
They haven’t lost back-to-back games since January 27th and are 31-6 in since then holding a current three-game winning streak.
In their most recent victory, they defeated the Heat who were on their own winning roll, and held them to 86 total points. The Suns masterfully took down the Heat and utilized their depth to seal the deal with four reserves reaching double-figures.
Deandre Ayton led the way with a double-double of 19 points and 13 rebounds and Devin Booker added 12 points. But the real damage was accomplished via the Suns’ reserves who showcased their depth with four players reaching double-figures.
Specifically, Cameron Johnson (15), Cameron Payne (14), Torrey Craig (14), and Dario Saric (13) were the bench killers.
Abdel Nader (knee) missed the last 13 games and is listed as out with no definitive timeline to return.
